Former Giants' LHP Lowry Attempting Comeback

By  | 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Left-hander Noah Lowry has pushed back a
scheduled throwing session in Arizona for major league teams to give himself more time to get ready for the audition.

The 29-year-old Lowry hasn't pitched in two years because of a variety of issues with his forearm and shoulder and is set to make a comeback bid. He had been set to pitch in front of about half the big league clubs Tuesday but his agent says that will now take place at a later date - by the pitcher's choice.

Lowry had surgery for a rare neuromuscular problem in his left forearm, called exertional compartment syndrome, on March 7, 2008,
and then had an arthroscopic procedure to remove a bone spur from
his left elbow in September that year.
